Not for seed starting
Very disappointed to find large sticks and clumps of dirt. Vegetable seeds did not start. Unacceptable product from a name you should be able to trust

Response from Customer CareApr 22, 2023
We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Miracle-Gro Seed Starting Potting Mix and appreciate your feedback. Most of our soils, especially potting mixes and garden soils, are made of composted forest products and contain very little if any actual soil. Composted forest products provide high organic content and nutrients without the concern for soil compaction which often occurs with potting mixes composed primarily of actual topsoil. The coarser material allows for air to reach the roots of the plant which improves plant performance. While small pieces of bark and twigs are intentional components of our growing media, including potting soil, garden soil, lawn soil, topsoil, etc., you should not find large pieces of wood or bark. We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please reach out to us at 877-220-3089 if we can further assist.

    We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Miracle-Gro Seed Starting Potting Mix and appreciate your feedback.

    Soils and soil amendment products may dry out too much in shipping or storage. When our soils dry out they become naturally water repellent due to the peat moss and organic materials that are an important part of the soil mixture. If soil/peat moss is dry upon opening the bag we suggest to empty what is needed into a plastic bucket or tub. Slowly stir in a small amount of water. Wearing garden gloves and or using a garden tool, work the soil and water together thoroughly until moistened. Do not add too much water at once or the mix will be too wet. Soil should be damp like a squeezed out sponge. Since dry potting mix can be dusty and messy it is best to mix the product outside.

    We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please reach out to us at 877-220-3089 if we can further assist. miracle-gro

    I've used this product before with very good success. Just started a planting of some seeds so I can't really say how this one will work. I did think the price was a little high for this product
